Fahrenheit improved
I bought the original Fahrenheit out of the hype and legacy it has but I was unimpressed, the famous 'petrol' notes through me off. I don't like it, I find it hard to wear even though I don't dislike it. I can wear it but I rather wear anything else.
Along came Aqua Fahrenheit. I found 1 at a discounter bin with no tester so I decided to pass however, months later it was still there and knowing it was discontinued I took that leap of faith and it did pay off!

First of all there's nothing aquatic about this flanker, perhaps Fahrenheit Eau or Fahrenheit Cologne would have been a more fitting name (not that that's relevant). Aqua drops many notes from the original which makes it a simpler an more wearable fragrance. I get a lot of grapefruit and Basil which works great with the violet, I just hope I got a little more mint.

This is a great spring/summer frag, one of my favs perhaps. So glad I got a 120ml at a great price.

Aqua by name, but not necessarily aquatic
I am not even sure whether this is still in production, but it is certainly still available on line. If you are a fan of the original Fahrenheit with a fresher twist, then this is worth checking...

Interesting homage to a Classic
Dior Aqua Fahrenheit is a bright, transparent and greener reinterpretation of the Classic Dior Fahrenheit. The citrus burst in the opening is refreshing and juicy; mint soon enters the composition introducing the green theme which accompanies the wearer throughout the day. Mint - Basil - Patchouli - enough Vetiver to balance the green dewy sweetness of the aforementioned notes. Once the citrus has faded Violets spring to life and bring a floral lightly powdery element to the green party. The citrus-green top and aromatic-floral mid are supported by a woody leather accord, which draws inspiration from the Classic Fahrenheit Base. The fragrance is pleasant, François Demanchy has proven his skill in creating a balanced, greener, lighter but not watered down homage to a wonderful Classic, which does not stray off onto the beaten aquatic path of modern mens perfumery. A pleasure to wear!

Eau de Fahrenheit
A lighter, more wearable Fahrenheit...

Aqua Fahrenheit is a new take on the original Fahrenheit, with a concept of "fire meets water", hence the "Aqua" prefix.

To me, I think this is a lighter, summer version of the original, a kind of "Eau de Fahrenheit" almost. It has a huge citrus note, provided by grapefruit, and this stays throughout the life of the fragrance, only drying down to original Fahrenheit at the end. You still get the violet leaf/leather (ie the "petrol" note) combination in the background, but the top and middle of the fragrance is dominated by the Grapefruit and Mandarin. I also get the mint and herbs, which combine with the citrus to give it a fresh feeling.

If I had to give it a name, I would call it Fahrenheit "fresh", because if you found the original stuffy and "too much", then give this one a try. It's a great clean, citrus take on the original "dark" and "heavy" Fahrenheit, and it can be worn all year round in my opinion. New, original take on a classic from Dior. Really good stuff.

Nice interpretation!
This is a good flanker of original Fahrenheit.

Fresh and comforting, it does really remembers the original scent but there's no smell of gasoline that many dislike.

I smell a nice grapefruit note combined with violet and leather.

Good lasting power (about 8 hours), sillage and projection.

Better than latest "sport" releases. Worth a try at least. Thumbs up!
